Actually it's all spelled out by a cross-desktop standard:

The advantage being the base directories are relocatable by way of
environment variables, and disposable cache data versus configuration
files versus valuable user data stays cleanly separated.

Thanks, Matthew !!

     This seems like it will be an interesting read.  Now, how do I discover which apps
and distros are subscribers to these practices?

     While I'm there, I'll look for other interesting documents, but can you suggest other
places where one might find useful and similar readings?

Merci d'avance,
